The OCSL Family Rename Add-in for Revit

From Oakley CAD Services Ltd comes the OCSL Family Rename add-in...

"OCSL Family Rename Tools is designed to aid the renaming of Autodesk® Revit® component Families and Types within a Autodesk Revit Project or series of Projects to a specific standard.

"The App has two commands. The first allows the export of the Family and Type names to a .Txt file and the second allows the re-import from the .Txt file to rename them. The commands are as follows:"

Family Rename Export

"The Family Rename Export Command opens a form loading Autodesk® Revit® Families and Types from the current project to a dataset where the User can select which ones fields they wish to export to a .TXT file. The path of the .TXT file can be defined before export. The .TXT file can then be modified using either Notepad or Excel to change the New Family or Type names."

The Export Form Provides a List of all the component Families and Types to export to a TXT file

Use Notepad Find and Replace to change New Family Names or New Type Names

Family Rename Import

"The Family Rename Import command allows the reimport of the text file by selecting the .TXT file to open. This loads the Family and Types to a Form where the available Families and Types are shown. This allows the renaming of the selected Autodesk® Revit® Families or associated Types."

Import the Data from the TXT File and Rename the Families and Types

There's more information available on the Autodesk Exchange Apps website.
